Step-by-Step Video Guide to Make the Pie
The first printed recipe for s'mores appeared in the Girl Scout Handbook "Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts" in 1927.
Here's All You Will Need
- 8–10 inch graham cracker pie crust
- 3 S'mores flavored Pop-Tarts
- 1 box cook and serve pudding, chocolate flavored
- 2 cups milk
- 7 oz. jar marshmallow creme
The First Marshmallow
The ancient Egyptians were the first to make marshmallows. They made a candy from the root sap of a mallow plant that grows in marshes.
Here's How You Make the Pie
- Crumble two of the S'mores Pop-Tarts. The easiest way to do it is to crumble them while they are still in the closed wrapper and then pour the pieces into a bowl. You will want them to be pieces smaller than 1/2 an inch.
- Make the chocolate pudding following the directions on the box. Basically you will pour the pudding mix and and the 2 cups of milk into a pan. Bring them to a full boil on medium heat making sure you are constantly stirring the pudding.
- As the pudding begins to boil, mix the Pop-Tart crumbles into the pudding. Make sure you keep stirring the pudding so that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. Adding the Pop-Tarts adds texture and flavor to the pudding layer.
- Remove the pudding from the heat and allow it to cool for just a few minutes. Don't leave it too long or the pudding will start to set and will stick in the pan.
- Carefully pour the pudding mix into the crust. Then smooth the pudding out with a spoon making sure it is even in the crust.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Heat the marshmallow cream in a bowl in the microwave for about 30 to 45 seconds.
- Add the marshmallow cream to the pie on top of the chocolate pudding. Gently smooth out the marshmallow topping.
- Crumble one more of the S'mores Pop-Tarts into a bowl. You'll want these bits to be extra small. Sprinkle the crumbles onto the top of the pie. You may not need all of the crumbles. Just lightly top the marshmallow fluff with the bits.
- Put the pie in the oven and cook for 20–30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
- Remove the pie from the oven and allow it to cool before serving. The marshmallow cream on the top will be fluffy when you first take it out of the oven. It will eventually smooth out.
- It is a very rich-tasting treat, so you may want to cut the pieces on the smaller side. Serve it warm or put it in the fridge for a bit and serve it cold. Either way it is delicious and tastes like campfire s'mores in a less messy form.
- Refrigerate leftovers (if there are any!).
How Yummy Is It?

Did you that Hershey's milk chocolate bars first came out in 1900 and cost a nickel? Times have really changed.
Ways to Switch Up the Recipe
- Make your own pie crust: You can make the crust from scratch really easily if you don't want to do a store-bought crust. Just mix 1 1/2 cup of finely crushed graham crackers (about 1 pack of the crackers), 1/2 cup of butter, 1/3 cup of sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Smooth the mix into a pie pan. Bake on 375o for 7 minutes and you are ready to go.
- Make the chocolate filling from scratch: There are several great recipes out there. For most of them, you will use semisweet chocolate, eggs, sugar, cream, and milk. My favorite is this version from "How Sweet It Is."
- Use marshmallows on the top: Whole marshmallows can be melted on the top instead of using the marshmallow cream. Just cover the top of the chocolate filling with marshmallows (large or small). Toast them in the oven on low broil for a few minutes or until they are golden brown.
- Leave out the Pop-tarts: The Pop-tarts just add flavor and texture (and fun!) to the recipe. They aren't a vital ingredient. Leave them out if you don't feel like using them.
- Use different flavors: You could try the pie with vanilla pudding and adding other flavors of Pop-Tarts into it. Other pudding flavors can also be used. You can even use a different type of crust or even add flavored marshmallows to the top. Coconut flavored marshmallows on the top would be a unique twist to s'mores pie.
